Description

This sock pattern is a design by Louise Robert originally published in 2012. Les Moutons de Biscotte, which means "Biscotte's sheep" in french, has been knitted hundreds of times since then! Nearly a decade later, the designer of this pattern offers you a reedited version!

This model is worked from the toes up with a short-row heel. The sheep pattern is worked in stranded colorwork which means that the unused yarn follows on the back of the work.

Use two contrasting colors for a neat and beautiful result! ...and be careful not to fall asleep while counting sheep!

Interesting sock design

It took a couple attempts, but I figured out the construction of these socks successfully. I did them in self-striping yarn, but I think I will see how they look when knitted in a more solid color.

Very pretty socks

See my Ravelry project for my knitting diary knitting these https://www.ravelry.com/projects/JulieLJtoo/les-moutons-de-biscotte
Started with the original 2012 pattern which I had problems with so downloaded the updated pattern. My first pair of toe up socks and my first pair of colourwork socks. Used good quality sock yarns but probably should have gone down a needle size to get a closer knit fabric and socks wearable in shoes/boots.
